to elbow their way to the front. for george h.w. bush that's a great example. another great example, william f. buckley. he had liberal friends. in fact, he campaigned for liberals that were his friends even though he knew it upset some on the conservative side. for william f. buckley, it wasn't a blood sport. >> to end this block, to counter it just a bit, and i'm sorry but it has the added value of being true, the president does need to reach out.agree. but he has, and it hasn't worked. so when he does it again, the republicans actually need to show up. >> you just quoted henry kissinger. there is hope. >> that's like me going jogging for ten minutes and saying afterwards, you know what i didn't lose 30 pounds. no i'm dead serious. they have stuck their toe in the water. that is it. when you still have democrats, democratic senators that run the senate andrea mitchell complaining that they've never been to camp david, the president doesn't call them they don't go over to the white house, then it's time for him to be more aggressive about this. >> two points quic
of them will not be here today. george w. bush, and george h.w. bush. the 88-year-old just got home from the hospital because of bronchitis and infection. and his son, george w., said he wanted to be with his father. but his dad said, when you leave the stage, stay off the stage. that's liberating. >> president carter, in september, set the record for the longest retirement in presidential history. it had been held by hubert hoover. now, jimmy carter's been ex-president for 32 years. and what he has done with that, as well. you see the crowds crossing pennsylvania avenue. everyone gathering. the president will be coming to the capitol, starting around 10:40. >> we are told, people are given much clearer directions this year about where they go, when they can cross. that security has asked that apps are guiding everybody. people were stuck in a tunnel four years ago, and couldn't get to their destination. >> 2 million people came to the mall. under 1 million this time around. you see the crowd right there. the president and the first lady are inside the white house right now. earlier this
children's lives and if it's true that dick cheney and george w. bush believe in the 1% solution if there was a 1% chance that we could stop another 9/11 they would do what it took to take rid of that 1% chance. the i think if that was our approach after 9/11 it should be our approach in protecting our children at schools and shopping malls and religious services. and society abroad. >> rose: and do you think the experience that you had and the awareness that you have reflected here and on your own program in public speeches has resonated with other republicans? >> it has resonated with other republicans but only because they were thinking the same thing as i was thinking. i can't tell you, charlie. i come from northwest florida, also known as the redneck riviera. some people call it l.a.-- lower alabama. we're very conservative. jerry falwell said my district was the most conservative district in america. i grew up in the southern baptist church with a lot of hunters. i lived in mississippi, we spent our summers in the woods. i can tell you, i grew up around hunters and guns and
about george w. bush, they're shredding the constitution tonight. >> that was a lie when they said it about george w. bush and it's a lie when they're saying it about anthony scalia. what scalia said was it protects america's right to constitutional arms. >> if you listen to the president, you would think that's the view of all of them. >> of course. >>> we'll move onto the debt ceiling with the government on pace to run out of money by mid-february. >> yesterday, the president warned republican leaders raising the nation's borrowing limit was non-negotiable and congress aimed to use it as lever eventuallyiage for deep s. >> while i'm willing to find middle ground to reduce our deficits, america cannot afford another debate. not paying its bills is irresponsible. it's absurd. republicans in congress have two choices here. they can act responsibly and pay america's bills or they can act irresponsibly and put america through another economic crisis. but they will not collect or ransom in exchange for not crashing the america economy. the financial well-being of the american people is
that george h.w. bush got in 1988. george h.w. bush won a landslide over michael dukakis. we know what happened to mitt romney. the same thing's happening now. the political ground is moving under their feet, and right now, sadly, neither they, nor the nra, is doing what it takes to make sure they adapt to changing times. and if they don't do it pretty y quickly, there's going to be changes for both organizations. >> more broadly among house republicans, you wrote in their response to colin powell, you in 1996 did not think he was the right choice to be the nominee, but you said the republican party of 2013 bears little resemblance to the party of ronald reagan that would have responded to powell's concerns with an all hands on deck effort to win the war back. it's big enough to win back the white house in 2016. and that's, to the point, we have a more and more bifurcated congress, not the congress you served in. there were 49 votes, only 49 votes for sandy relief last night. that says a lot. there were more than 49 votes for gulf damage and repair after katrina. >> colin powell is a m
with us. >> thank you. >> former president george w. bush and his father, former president george h.w. bush, aren't attending this inaugural. president -- former president bill clinton and jimmy carter are. we are waiting to see president clinton. stand by for that. also taking a closer look at the downside of winning another four years of the white house. it doesn't always go so well. the second-term curse, as some call it. that's coming up as well. first, though, inaugural flashback. >> let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. >> we all remember the phrase the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. but even more important than the phrase was the whole attitude that fdr had. he projected optimism and projected forward movement. people felt that's the mystery of leadership, that somehow the depression they were suffering, they weren't going to be alone anymore. they had a leader who was going to take care of it. when you have diabetes... your doctor will say get smart about your weight. that's why there's glucerna hunger smart shakes. they h
, and is it their egos are so precious, they can't acknowledge what they said about george w. bush, enhanced interrogation? barack obama was wrong and bush was right his claim to fame wouldn't have happened, if bush didn't have the the insight, is it ego? >> to support what howard says, any means necessary, i support those interrogation techniques. if we can use those techniques against bad people that want to do bad things to americans and you know, hell, i'll hold them down myself. i mean, it saves lives. it's one of many pieces of kit in a toolbox and regardless of whether or not you want to face up to reality and realize that you do have to use extreme measures against these terrorists, it just has to be done, and thank goodness, good people are willing to do some dirty work. >> sean: but we also have to put some perspective on it, howard, and this three people gotten ha gotten-- got enhanced interrogation, which led to the courier, and to bin laden. i give him credit for, and liberals seem not to be able to hear that, which seems to be connected to this reaction to the movie. >> sean, w
vote are not yet at that point. it was just eight years ago that george w. bush got 44% of the latino vote, but if they keep this up much longer, they are in serious threat of the same thing happening with latino vote that happened with the black vote. >> you have to remember, it happened really fast. nixon got 40% of the black vote. by the time carter came along, you had a big dent in that black vote for the democratic party. i think something jose said is really important. not only are the democrats really now a part of the minority. they're also the younger party, the you youth party. you are talking about 50,000 latinos turning 18 every month. the democratic party is practically at the birthday party registering them to be democrats. the voter registration numbers in florida alone, as i'm sure they know very well, they are accelerating the registration of latino democrats and latino independents. the republican party has a tiny, tiny number and percentage of those new voters, so being the younger party, democrats also have the vocabulary to speak to these voters. they're not using
that the republicans have one idea, and that's to cut spending. they don't do that when george w. bush was -- >> i thought their one idea, david, was cutting the deficit. >> that's -- they say that's the case, but it really is they want to just talk about spending cuts as if that is going to help the economy. and any mainstream economist now tells you that you may have to do that in some ways for long-term deficit implications but that's not good in the short run. even simpson/bowles say don't cut so fast. >> and just to be clear, it's not at all clear that they actually have coherent plans for anything they're suggesting. they have sort of hand waving spending cuts, entitlement reform without really writing down a specific path to get there. >> incredible. david corn and jared bernstein, gentlemen, thank you so much. stay with us. we'll be right back. what do we want to build next ? that's the question. every day. when you have the most advanced tools, you want to make something with them. something that helps. helps safeguard our shores. helps someone see through a wall of fire. helps those nowh
this because long term the republican party has to fix this at the national level. >> george w. bush tried to address this head on. what do you think about the controversy now? >> well, frankly, i think that you can look at both parties and find things you don't like. in the republican party it's extremely small sliver. i suspect there's people in the democratic party that have some very old views. i'm disappointed that secretary powell would only look in one direction and that's the republicans. i think there's a hostility in much of the liberal wings of the political party towards organized religion. i think it's intolerance of the left twashd people of good faith on the right and that worries me. i wish colin powell had talked about that as well. i wish colin powell had talked about the implications of chunk hagel talking about the jewish lobby that intimidates people. he said, make the jews pay. colin powell could have talked about that and whether that was a dark strain or is his focus only on when republicans act wrong? chuck hagel did, too, in these circumstances. it's a topic worth
impeach him because he had executive orders. i can just say this? papa bush, george h.w. bush had an executive order that stopped the imports of assault weapons. that was back, if i'm not mistaken in 1989. so don't tell me executive orders is just an obama thing, it's not. let's go the substance of this thing. would it have stopped the heinous tragic crime? is it dealing with the mental illness? is it dealing with the cultural issues? >> clearly, larry, you're absolutely right the president does have the power of the executive order. let's see the president use that power not only to issue executive orders but also as the thought leader in the country really to bring focus on what is the common factor in all of these dreadful things. i'm a mother, i'm a doctor. it's unimaginable and unthinkable and that is deviant behavior. these are criminal minds perpetrating these crimes. we need to have an effective approach to that problem. guns are inas a nm-- inanimate . >> family break up. the fact that there's no faith or heaven forbid prayer in elementary school. is there enough of that
and suffered a concussion. >>> former president george h.w. bush waking up in his own bed this morning. he spent more than two months in the hospital for a bronchitis-related cough. the president says he wishes he could personally thank everyone who sent so many get-well messages. >>steve: what do these four u.s. presidents have in common? anyone with a knowledge of history probably remembers they were all assassinated while in office. what you didn't know is the connection between each of their killers. turns out they've all got something in common. brad meltzer figured it out, the author of "the fifth assassin." good morning. you're at this book signing. a guy comes up to you and says what? >> he says i work in a museum in washington, d.c. and you've got to see what we have. i said what do you have there? he said we have pieces of abraham lincoln's skull, the bones of john wilkes. would you like to see it? i go see it. he doesn't have the artifacts from the london assassination. they had the others as well. i start thinking what if they had a serial killer re-creating the crimes of all t
months of treatment for what began as bronchitis, former president george h.w. bush is home from the hospital tonight. back to "hardball." >>> if, in fact, and i believe this is true, everybody across party lines was as deeply moved and saddened as i was by what happened in newtown, then we're going to have to vote based on what we think is best. we're going to have to come up with answers that set politics aside. >> welcome back to "hardball." it's been one month since the horrific tragedy at sandy hook elementary school. today president obama said he has a set of proposals given to him today from vice president biden. in his press conference this morning, the president signaled what may be coming in their recommendations and how they may go into effect. let's watch. >> what you can count on is that the things that i have said in the past, the belief that we have to have stronger background checks, that we can do a much better job in terms of keeping these magazine clips with high capacity out of hands of folks who shouldn't have them, an assault weapons ban that is meaningful,
've done to their own party over the years. you know, i really think we have to remember that george h.w. bush was a contributor to planned parenthood and sponsored birth control legislation when he was in congress. leading figures in the republican party used to be pro-choice and certainly pro-contraception so there's been a gradual takeover of the party. some of it has been quiet, some of it has been quite obvious, but this is the year when they felt emboldened to come out and tell us what they thought about rape and personhood and violence against women and they were rebuked for it. they're going to spend a lot of time changing their language, but i don't see any signs they really got the message that it's about their policies. >> i hope they change their policies but also talk about women with a little bit more respect. i don't think they're off to a good start because they're in the state of transvaginal probes but you never know. krystal ball and joan walsh, thank you. >>> a programming note, tune into msnbc throughout the weekend and, of course, all damond for our special inaugura
for him. he gave the invocation in 2005 for president george w. bush's second inauguration. leon replaces pastor louie giglio an evangelical who withdrew himself from participating after think progress found him giving an anti-gay sermon back in the '90s. we're back after the break. arguments to feel confident in their positions. i want them to have the data and i want them to have the passion. but it's also about telling them, you're put on this planet for something more. i want this show to have an impact beyond just informing. an impact that gets people to take action themselves. as a human being, that's really important. this is not just a spectator sport.
